Climate Support Programme (CSP) - Phase III

As of: April 2020

Objective and activities

The Project supports the South-African Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) in implementing the national climate change response policy in (the areas of) mitigation, adaptation, and MRV. In addition, the DEA will be strengthened in its catalytic role to induce other departments and the private sector in implementing concrete climate-relevant projects (so-called ‘Flagship Programmes’). The DEA will be supported to implement the South-African climate policy in a faster, knowledge-based and more effective way. The project thus contributes to the desired transformation towards a “lower carbon economy and climate resilient society”. The successful development and implementation of the national climate policy is a precondition for South Africa to continue playing a prominent and constructive role in the international climate process.
